Synaesthetic Museum, a project that takes apart the visual and auditory properties, then combines them in an architectural way, creating a piece that invokes our emotions by manipulating these senses. Taking this further the museum will heighten the awareness to the role our senses play on the built environment. Therefore, the goal of this piece is to re-define the use of light and sound through form.

In taking the two apart, the project looks to find a common ground in which the two can seamlessly co-exist forming an elegant design.

Testing the sounds through movement, a layering of strings created a harmonic display of sounds, as it vibrates by the local costal winds of Quebec Canada.

Taking the approach of light, its rays where carefully mapped to precisely see its behavior, when it moves from its source and projected on to various surfaces. This allows the rays to be refined and optimize to there liking.

Users of the museum will see an array of light displays invoking an emotion, with a harmonic sound produced from the surrounding winds making the Museum like an Aeolian Pavilion.
